Heading into Superbowl weekend Radiolab put out an interesting podcast all about American football. I might be in the minority but I knew very little about the origination of the game and it was great to learn a little about it. The stories about "Pop" Warner stretching the rules reminded me a little bit about the Patriots and the recent "gamesmanship" vs. cheating and the Deflategate scandal.
If you have some time check out the podcast with the link below. It brings a little light to how the most popular game in America started.
